New Year, New Options: Introducing UberSUV!

The new year means more ways to Uber in Detroit! Starting today, Uber riders now have the option of requesting an SUV and riding big in a Navigator, Escalade, or Suburban.

If your Uber group is larger than four people, everyone can ride together in one Uber.  Each SUV can accommodate up to six passengers.  In Detroit, we offer a base fare of $13 and charge $3.50/mile + $0.30/minute. For more information on this check out the Detroit city page.

How do I request an SUV?

If you are using the app, just slide the vehicle view over to SUV . You can also differentiate car type if you’re using the BlackBerry app to request.  BLACK & uberX options will continue to be available.

Note: Choosing “BLACK” and being picked up by an SUV will not charge you SUV rates unless you have more than four people.

Sample Fares

  • Birmingham to Royal Oak: $33-40
  • Downtown to Royal Oak: $58-74
  • Grosse Pointe to Detroi Metro Airport: $106-140
